Saul Williams said the shotgun to the head PocketMTV 2003I have had people comment that they sometimes can t tell the difference between what I consider good poetry and what I don t To me it s as simple as can be 999% of the time good poetry deals with the person place or thing section of the category of nouns Bad poetry almost invariable deals with the idea section T S Eliot started out Book 5 of his long poem Paterson with the injunction No ideas but in things It is a retelling of the golden rule of poetry show don t tell What most bad poets don t realize is that it is almost impossible to directly show an idea It is easy to show an idea through things as long as you re willing to accept the ambiguity inherent in that idea Many poets are not willing to do so for fear that either a the reader won t get it or b the reader won t interpret it correctly Either way folks bad poets are talking down to youI tell you all this at the beginning of this review because I have not recently encountered a book of poetry where both sides of the euation are so well defined as they are in said the shotgun to the head the third book by slam champion Saul Williams I figured going into this that I was going to be getting a book of bad poetry as usually defined by the slam community where how you perform the poem and how naked your message is are important by far than whether you ve crafted a good poem or not A uick flip through before I began reading strengthened this impression with lots of indentation font changes different sizes black pages this is exactly the kind of stuff I expect from someone who uses this sort of trickery to disguise the fact that he simply can t write Then I read the first three sections and I was blown away from now oncitieswill be builton one sideof the streetso that soothsayerswill have wilderness to wanderand loversspace enoughto contemplate a kiss 29 30 Concrete images that convey feelings That s exactly the type of thing I m talking about The language is a bit looser than I usually like but Williams has the concept of how to write damn good poetry down pat and he does a fantastic job of realizing it in these first three sectionsThe inevitable political sections crop up despite this being a love poem and for a while there he manages to keep it up viz this gem from p 56 where is that voice from nowhereto remind usthat the holy ground we walk onpurified by native bloodhas rooted treeswhose fallen leavesnow color codea sacred list of demands but as the vast majority of political poets are wont to do he gets to a point where he no longer seems to trust the reader to get the point unless he spells it out for us in three foot high red neon and brands it into our foreheads given all the fontastic trickery in this book I m sure I d mean that literally if he could have figured out a way to do so as in we are exiting your colosseumand encircling your box officedemanding our families backour rituals backour cultures backour languages backand our gods 68 I ll certainly give praise where prise is due that Williams at least realizes that if you must do this thing at least you should try to go from concrete to vague and in that respect it s better than 99% of the political poetry that I ve read but it still leaves a bad taste in my mouthThat said while the political runs throughout this piece it s usually enmeshed in the concrete images and language that mark the first section I uoted and overall the book s good points outweigh its bad pretty strongly It s that rare example of slam poetry that manages at times to bridge the gap between performance poetry and art and it s worth checking out Data and Goliath you re willing to accept the ambiguity inherent in that idea Many poets are not willing to do
